Why Every Woman Should Be Having One-Night Stands [Friday Faves]

Being in a relationship is great, but getting there totally sucks. You meet someone, start to like that someone and then go crazy trying to figure out if they like you, why they aren’t calling, if you should text them, if you should have kissed them, if telling them you love The Hills was too much information…

It sucks, which is why I think one-night stands are the way to go. Seriously, if you are safe (read: wrap that sh*t up) the one-night engagement is a total win/win. And here are 5 reasons why:

1. No expectations: When I meet a guy while ordering a round of Soco and Limes at the bar, I never think to myself, “Wow! He could be the one!” We both know that our relationship will last approximately 6 hours (if that long), and then we will both go our separate ways. No wondering when he’s gonna call, or if he also wants 2 kids and a Puggle. You do your thing and move on. The end.

2. You can try all those crazy positions: Since you’re never really gonna see the dude again anyway, why not try the Arm Chair? (Look it up.) If it goes poorly (and he ends up with a black eye) it doesn’t matter – you won’t be fraternizing with him again. And if it goes well you have mastered a new position for the next dude who buys you a cocktail.

3. It’s a good story: Good sex, bad sex or no sex (too much alcohol doesn’t always lend itself well to doin’ it) there will most definitely be a great story attached to it. And who doesn’t love a great hookup tale?

4. No late night food: Let’s face it; when you go home from the bar with the roomies someone always ends up making drunk dip/ordering a pizza. When you go home with a boy, however, food is the last thing on your mind. Unless it involves licking it off the other person. Plus, sex burns calories.

5. Learn what you like: Practice makes perfect and sex is no exception. The more you have, the more you learn, and one-night stands are the perfect study sessions.

      For the love of all things good in this world. Please, stop posting such bad sex advise. I hope no one takes any of this seriously.

        please do read my comment below, you closed-minded person. :)

        additionally: i don't know why anyone should take you seriously when you can't even spell "advice" correctly. it's not "advise", _ _ _ _ _. :)

    2. […] • Why you should be having one-night stands? Oh you already are? Way to be ahead of the curve. (CollegeCandy) […]

    3. Haha I am so guilty of number 4. As much as there are ups to one night stands, there are definitely downs. Whether I like the guy or not, I still feel cruddy and having a guilty conscience (result of stealing from the cookie jar one too many times) is not the best thing to have the morning after. Been there, done that and…got a new TMNT shirt.

      So Betty and Jess, I'm guessing you don't agree with Lauren as I do? Because this is word for word my thought process many a drunken times…

    5. Emmy says:

      I'm with Jess, I just can't sleep with strangers. To me personally, Sex is about trust and Trust can't be earned over a couple beers and shots at a party. I just can't do it.

      this definitely does not apply to everyone, some of us get very emotionally attached, especially when you are intimate with someone and then nothing ever happens again, it hurts. i hope girls know themselves and if they will feel attachment before they follow this advice, otherwise it's gonna be painful in the long run

    8. Nina says:

      I'm also the type of person who doesn't want to have sex with strangers. I'd rather "practice" with someone I can trust.

    9. Neha says:

      betty: stop being such a judgemental person. some people really are capable of staying unattached during sex. not everyone mixes emotions with sex. stop overgeneralizing and saying that the article is 'bad sex advice" when it's only applicable to you and a couple others at most. this is the 21st century. women rule the world. grow up.

      1. Kelci says:

        I think what betty was trying to say was that it can be dangerous to just go home with just anyone. I agree with betty. What if they have an STD and dont tell you? Condoms don't always work people.

    10. pro-safe says:

      why would you let some stranger into your holy temple? sex is sacred… it is not meant to be treated like something that doesn't matter or isn't a big deal. Not only can someone get pregnant or an STD that will change your life forever, but where is your self-esteem and self-respect if you let just anyone down there?!!

      This shows you have no self respect for your self in any way its filthy.. and one day it’ll catch up to you that your cooter had more people checking into it than face book … and another thing you don’t have to give ur puss out to every guy you meet at the bar to make a valid point that women rule the world … its girls like you that make classy clean girls get fucked over cause u just don’t ask questions a fuck anyone …. does anyone have morals these days or is it just a cool thing to be a slut now? ??

    13. sotxparadise says:

      Betty, very refreshing.
      Neha, if you can only back up your point regarding the merits of casual sex by pointing out others’ grammatical mistakes, please reevaluate the strength of your argument. BTW, it’s “I” not “i”.

    14. Bobbi says:

      1. Condoms only have a 86% success rate
      2. Women are empowered by respecting themselves, not by giving in.
      3. Sex is a gift, not a joke or a weight loss plan.
      4. Being into this lifestyle is like being into fast food instead of fine dining.
      5. The author is too dull to understand the psychological bond that sex creates.

      1. Howeeee says:

      2. ella says:
